NEWS JUST IN: BIRD FLU HAS ARRIVED IN BRITAIN. In Scotland a swan was found dead in harbour wich died from the deadly H5N1 avian flu. What worries me is that any bird reported to have died suspiciously will be taken to a lab in Weybridge Surrey, wich is not very far from where I live!!
Scary!

Dont panic. Exclamation
You have to be in close contact with these poor birds in order to get infected from the virus.

Thumbs Up!

Its only when the virus mutates so that it can spread from human to human, by which time, the vaccination will be in circulation Wink

This 'bird flu' borders on mass panic. Consider, only 105 people have been infected, and these are mainly those of very poor living, where their livestock probably lives in the same dwelling as the owners. Now infected birds that travel are the migratory ones, strange, Swans don't do much of that, and this time of year the birds that migrate are going in a northerly direction. Next, to get infected the contact must consist of either eating the eggs raw, or undercooked flesh of infected bird.

It's just something to conjure up a lot of paper news print, etc. And of course money!

More chance of being involved in a RTA.....

(Just in case... RTA = Road Traffic Accident)
